  • Npower still chasing debt proved not correct

    My husband received bills from npower for an address he lived at in 2012. He left in 2013 advising them of this fact and paying the final bill. When he received the first correspondence in 2017 he sent proof he was at a different address from 2013 to 2014 and then he has been on the council tax where we live since then. The bills use the dates 2013 to 2017. The first collections people closed the case but now there are two more different companies chasing the same debt. Of course npower won't speak to him. Is there anything he can do as this is almost harassment! Thanks.

    Hi

    It's possible that NPower have sold the alleged debt to a debt purchase company.
    What are the names of the companies now chasing it?

        Ok

        It would help if you cn find out the name of the other firm who is chasing.

        Meanwhile snd one of these to NPower, keep a copy & get proof of sending.

              They appear to 'wear different hats'.

              Have you received a "Goodbye from NPower, Hello from Debt Manager" letter(s)?

                A notice of transfer of sent to new external agency letter

                  Ok, that sounds like a notice of legal assignment (though they can sometimes be challenged.)

                  If so, Debt Managers now own the alleged debt.

                  It sounds like he might acknowledged it (in writing?) within the last 6 years

                  Dates are going to be crucial......when was the account 'officially' terminated by NPower?

                    2017. He moved out in 2013 and has sent council tax proof to the initial debt collector in 2018 so I'm not sure he has acknowledged owing anything?

                      Ok

                      Send one of these to both NPower & Debt Managers Ltd.(No charge.)
                      Get proof of sending & keep copies for your records.
